A new class of state lawmakers filed into the ornate House chambers Wednesday afternoon for a presentation on decorum, some posing for selfies before taking a seat behind desks that do not yet bear their names.

The 39 new members of the Minnesota House - some of whom are returning after a term or two out of office - are in the middle of a crash course on the how the Legislature works. The large freshman class will constitute more than a quarter of the state House members, and 45 percent of Democrats, when the Legislature convenes Jan. 8.
